In my case also having Teletype connected makes everything work fine. When I have crow, W/, Ansible, and Just Friends on the bus, the procedure that seems so far to work consistently is:
- make sure leader mode is disabled, then tap the preset key to exit the preset page and save leader mode settings to flash.
- reset the case (I’m using a Tiptop Mantis)
- now enable leader mode.
This seems to work every time, at least with my current I2C wiring (all three modules are on a single 3x2-pin ribbon cable). As opposed to @scanner_darkly’s experience with multipass apps linked above, I am able to toggle leader mode off and on in this case and it still works. I am even able to send ii commands from crow simultaneously.
If I have leader mode enabled when I power Ansible on, it’s not able to communicate. In some cases I can still get crow to talk to Just Friends if I mess with the
If I replace JF with TXo, I can’t get it to work. If I then add either or both modules to the bus and add Teletype, it works again. I’m not too sure what’s going on here but I’m certainly intrigued, for now I would say probably a powered busboard or Teletype is the best bet. Interested to hear if the procedure above works for others or there’s something case / bus specific about this behavior.
